PE & Sports at Kirkby Malzeard CE Primary School

The government provides funding for primary schools to develop PE and sport provision. As a school we receive £8000 plus £5 per pupil. This funding is used to have a direct impact on the quality of teaching and learning in PE/Sports lessons and is used to provide:   

  • Specialised professional development opportunities for staff. 
  • High quality PE/ sports coaching for pupils.
  • Purchasing resources and training courses for teachers.
  • Developing the leadership of PE across the school.

PE / sport have always had a high priority at Kirkby Malzeard School. As a member of the Harrogate School Sports Partnership we pay an all –inclusive £1300 annual fee. This funding allows us access to their vision and mission;

            ‘The Harrogate School Sports Partnership is a partnership of Primary & 

Secondary Schools across Harrogate,Knaresborough, Ripon and   Nidderdale. The vision of the partnership is to create a sustainable PE, School Sport and Physical Activity system as part of the core provision for all children and young people. Their mission therefore is to positively impact on the life of every young person attending partnership schools through the opportunities they provide. Both their vision and mission is promoted through their core School Games values of Determination, Honesty, Passion, Respect, Self-belief and Teamwork.’


We know our sports funding has been used successfully because;

  • We have provided increased opportunities for all children from Foundation Stage to Y6 participate in level 2 school competitions.
  • We have increased our participation in sporting competitions over recent years – in 2016/17 our pupils have been involved in 20 competitions.
  • Gifted and talented children are identified and directed towards further training / competitive opportunities.
  • We have increased participation in sporting activities after school.
  • All children make progress in PE & Sports from their starting points.
  • The leadership and co-ordination of sports and PE are strong.
